To calculate the overall star rating and percentage breakdown by star, we don’t use a simple average. Instead, our system considers things like how recent a review is and if the reviewer bought the item on Amazon. It also analyses reviews to verify trustworthiness.
I saw a review about these socks about a year ago. I run half marathons and always lose my big toe nail after each one. According to reviews these socks prevent that happening. I have no idea of any scientific evidence behind that suggestion. I can only say, I have run three HM since getting these and I still have my big toe nails! This was my third pair and the other two are still going strong.
Really comfortable for running, I did 6 miles in them today without any issue. It does take a bit of getting used to but I found within a few minutes I had forgotten about them. Getting my toes in them was a bit of a challenge (kind of like trying to get a small child's fingers into a pair of woolly gloves) but I'm sure I'll get quicker.
I will be getting another couple of pairs and may even try them out for badminton in a couple of weeks.
Nice and thin, but warm and comfy. Putting on the individual toes take a bit of getting used to, but feel great. I bought these for a bike trip, to go under a pair of wind proof thermal socks. Having bought many ‘liner’ socks in the past most are too thick - these are just right, about the thickness of a pair of plain woolly knitted tights. Perfect under socks and still comfy in bike boots when worn alone.
Once you get used to the initially slightly odd feeling of each toe having its own covering of material, and work out a way to get the little toe in place you will hopefully find, as I have, that blisters during ultras are a thing of the past. I now wear these on every run, without fail. I am a convert.
Bought these after getting blisters between toes 3 miles into a 6 mile walk. Used first time today on a 7.5 mile walk and not even a hint of any blisters. Not only are they comfortable,even with normal socks over my feet didn't get too hot
These are great and I have ordered more, I thought I would find them annoying but I actually love the feeling of fabric between my toes. They also stay securely in place, although my little toe is tiny and does pop out sometimes. They are very good quality and feel great, I am a convert!
Ideas great but the toe covers in my pair were in a straight line, so the end toes easily came out an I ended up walking with bits where my toes should of been folded under my toes an foot, agony!! Had to cut them off to complete my walk, already sore an blistered
Generally I am not one for writing reviews however these are so good that I have had to break with tradition. I started walking on the weekends but was being plagued by friction blisters on and between my toes, I tried wearing toe protectors and blister plasters but was still suffering. Since purchasing these I have not had a single blister, can comfortably do 8-10 miles without a problem. Would definitely recommend these to anyone that suffers with toe blisters or sores.
